The Black Isle

The Black Isle is brilliant for cycling, with some superb on and off-road routes to be explored on two wheels.

Using a bike is cheap, gets you fit, and is a great way to beat the queues - particularly relevant when the Kessock Bridge is busy.

If the option of using an E-Bike interests you, there are currently loans available via the Energy Saving Trust.  See this link for more info:
